Former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes has died

Former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes is dead at the age of 77, the network confirmed on Thursday.

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many,” Elizabeth Ailes, Ailes’ wife, said in a statement that was first reported by Drudge Report and then read on air by Fox.

Ailes resigned from Fox News in July 2016 after he was accused by multiple women of sexual harassment.
